[0003] In order to implement virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), various wearable electronic devices may be connected to a portable wireless electronic device (for example, a smartphone) by using wireless communication. Such wearable electronic devices are epitomized by eyeglass-type devices, which may also be referred to as mixed reality (XR) glass.

[0004] An eyeglass-type wearable electronic device may display images on eyeglass lenses to implement AR. Light may be projected onto eyeglass lenses to display images on the lenses. For example, a projector having a very small size (for example, a micro projector or pico projector) may be used. Examples of such projector may include a laser scanning display (LSD), a raster/retinal scanning display (RSD), a digital micro-mirror display (DMD), and a liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS). In addition, a transparent display may be used to display image on lenses.

[0005] Wearable devices have evolved into accessory types and thus replaced existing fashion items. Therefore, wearable devices have become lightweight and compact in line with increasing attention to aesthetic design and portability. Compactness and slimness of eyeglass-type wearable devices also have become important in connection with design. Therefore, wearable electronic devices may have limited arrangement space.

[0006] An eyeglass-type wearable device is, due to characteristics thereof, presumably worn on the user’s body, particularly on the head, and used. In this case, the communication performance is heavily affected by the physical position of the antenna when the same is worn and used.

According to an embodiment, the electronic device 101 may include a main body (e.g., a main body 223 of FIG. 2) and a support (e.g., a first support 221 and/or a second support 222 of FIG. 2). According to an embodiment, the components of the electronic device 101 may be arranged in the main body 223 or the supports 221 and 222.

[0040] According to an embodiment, the processor 120 may execute a program stored in the memory 130 to control at least one other component (e.g., a hardware or software component) and may perform a variety of data processing or operations. According to an embodiment, the processor 120 may provide an augmented reality service to the user. The processor 120 may output at least one virtual object through the display module 160 so that the at least one virtual object is additionally displayed in a real space corresponding to the viewing angle of the user wearing the electronic device 101.

[0041] According to an embodiment, the memory 130 may store a variety of data used by at least one component (e.g., the processor 120 or the sensor module 176) of the electronic device 101.

The display module 160 may include a display, a hologram device, or a projector, and a control circuit for controlling a corresponding device. According to an embodiment, the display module 160 of the electronic device 101 may include at least one glass lens (e.g., a first glass lens (e.g., a first glass lens 220 of FIG. 2)) and/or a second glass lens (e.g., a second glass lens 230 of FIG. 2)). According to an embodiment, the first glass lens 220 may include at least a portion of a first display module 351, and the second glass lens 230 may include at least a portion of a second display module 353. For example, the first display module 351 and/or the second display module 353 may each include a display panel. The display panel may be made of a transparent element so that the user can perceive an actual space through the display module 160. The display module 160 may display at least one virtual object on at least a portion of the display panel so that the user wearing the electronic device 101 can see that the virtual object is added to the real space. For example, the viewing angle of the user may include an angle and/or range at which the user can recognize an object. According to an embodiment, the display module 160 may include a first display module 351 corresponding to the left eye of the user and/or a second display module 353 corresponding to the right eye of the user. According to an embodiment, the processor 120 may load configuration information (e.g., a resolution, a frame rate, the size of the display area, and/or the sharpness of the display area) related to the performance of the display module from the memory 130, and may adjust the performance of the display module 160 based on the above configuration information.

The other electronic device may transmit, to the electronic device 101, configuration information of the display panel included in glass lenses (e.g., the first glass lens 220 and/or the second glass lens 230) corresponding to the detected primary or auxiliary eyes based on the information related to the primary eye/auxiliary eye received from the electronic device 101. The electronic device 101 may change at least a portion of the configuration of the display panel based on the configuration information of the display panel received from the other electronic device. For example, the configuration of the display panel may be changed to lower the quality of the display panel. Here, at least a portion of the configuration may be changed such that the user does not recognize the change. According to an embodiment, the electronic device 101 may reduce the resolution of the display panel, reduce the frame rate, or adjust the size and position of the display area of the display panel.
